Abstract:

1. Molecules with silly or unusual names -- 2. Minerals with silly or unusual names -- 3. Proteins and enzymes with silly or unusual names -- 4. Genes with silly or unusual names -- 5. Silly molecules names - the game

This popular science book shows that chemists do have a sense of humor, and this book is a celebration of the quirky side of scientific nomenclature. Here, some molecules are shown that have unusual, rude, ridiculous or downright silly names. Written in an easy-to-read style, anyone - not just scientists - can appreciate the content. Each molecule is illustrated with a photograph and/or image that relates directly or indirectly to its name and molecular structure. Thus, the book is not only entertaining, but also educational
